SSDs have made their presence felt across more consumer products, these days, which range from notebooks to the hot new topic in town, Ultrabooks, that primarily use SSDs for storage. While this is all good, the prices are still on the higher side, which means it’s not affordable by many, and continue to be something for the enthusiast crowd. Among many memory manufacturers, who also have a good SSD portfolio, Intel has been a long time player and has only recently launched their brand new 520 series SSDs that feature for the first time, SandForce’s SF-2281 controller for full SATA III (6Gb/s) speeds. Other companies, like OCZ have long been using this controller and now Intel joins the gang as well.
Comes with a good bundle
SATA III ready!
Very good performance
It wasn't possible to replicate the read speeds as well, so for this we had to transfer the files to the physical drive. Here, we got a sequential read speed of 95Mb/s and a random speed of 87.5Mb/s. Clearly, the Velociraptor was bottlenecking the performance of the SSD.
